Fuse Block Info.

We purchased a used 2002 Windsong in Late August. Anong the phamplets, information sheets, etc. we received was the Forest River "Owners Manual", which is sadly lacking in information. For example, the sewer flush fill says "See Owner's Manual", but the owner's manual contains no information about the sewer flush fill.

Anyway - - - -

My backup camera stopped working automatically when I shifted into reverse, but worked fine when simply turned on, so my first thought was to check for a blown fuse. I found the conversion fuse block mounted on the firewall near the steering column, but there was nothing to tell me what fuse controlled what feature. After checking 16 fuses, I finally found the blown fuse and replaced it and the BU camera now works as it should.

Here's my problem: I am unable to find any information on what fuses protect what circuit or feature. There's no sketch or diagram in the "Owners Manual" and when I called Forest River, they couldn't help. Somewhere, someplace, there should be information about the fuse blocks and about how other things and features work on the Windstream.

If anyone can shed any light on this lack of useful information problem (a book, a publisher, a source), it will be greatly appreciated.

Do you have a cover over your fuse box? We don't

Yes. We have a cover over the fuse box. The 12-volt fuse box is located on the driver's side of the firewall to the left of where the steering column penetrates the firewall.

Can you send me a photo of it? I got this thing used and after we figured out what we had bought, we figured out that this thing had some pretty bad water damage that wasn't disclosed. So, we are upset and stuck, but still have to fix things. Thanks! You can email me at gaclark1408@gmail.com. Thanks!

Sorry about the very slow reply. Just got back to this forum. We don't have a digital camera so a photo cannot be sent . If you're missing a fuse block cover, maybe you can get one from Forest River.
